If you are experiencing mental, emotional or physical discomfort, Acupuncture may enhance your overall health and wellness, but should not replace the advice from your primary care physician.  I encourage my clients to work with their primary care physician to discuss all options and medical services. Together, we can educate and alleviate the signs and symptoms you are currently experiencing.

An unbalanced body occurs slowly and rebalancing will take time. Numerous treatments may be required if you are experiencing chronic pain. A holistic approach is required when creating an individualized therapeutic treatment plan.

Pulse Diagnosis

Pulse diagnosis is one of the most complex and important diagnostic techniques used in Chinese Medicine. 

The overrall information required to diagnose an individual's overall constitution and Qi is obtained through feeling and evaluating  your pulses. This information is used to create an individualized treatment plan.

Each individual's overall health  and wellness is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flowing through the natural pathways within the body (aka meridians). Acupuncture stimulates and improves the overall Qi movement throughout the body. 

Tongue Diagnosis

Tongue diagnosis uses the color, shape, thickness, lines, and size which provides the practitioner with an abundance of information. The tongue says a lot about an individual's current health and no two tongues are alike.
